Kate Mara In J. Mendel – 2013 Emmy Awards

Kate Mara In J Mendel - 2013 Emmy Awards

Kate Mara took to the red carpet at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California, wearing the opposite of her sister Rooney Mara’s current favoured colour: black.

Her all-white, J. Mendel Spring 2014 design betrayed a bit of its innocence with its sheer bodice that featured a mesh-lace, peekaboo effect and its daring slit-to-there, double-panel skirt.

She kept the white theme going strong with her lacquered nails and white-edged, clear Charlotte Olympia platform pumps, which actually seemed a bit overwrought for this occasion.

A more minimal, smokey eye, nude lip and a crisp, spit-straight bob finished off the barely accessorized look.

White-hot or not?

        +3

        • Sam Mac September 23, 2013 at 08:24 #

          +4, although I’d have liked a liiiitle bit of a tan, considering all the white

    • CreoleLady September 23, 2013 at 10:39 #

      +5.

    • Nat September 23, 2013 at 17:48 #

      +6. Even though this reminded me of Rooney Mara

    • KatieKate September 24, 2013 at 06:58 #

      +7, easily in my top 5.

  2. Christine September 23, 2013 at 03:13 #

    I like the skirt portion. Not feeling the top.

  3. Tweed September 23, 2013 at 03:18 #

    Kate as styled by , or as, Rooney.

    • kane September 23, 2013 at 07:07 #

      It’s what I’m getting from this vibe too.

      • kane September 23, 2013 at 07:08 #

        Eh, yeah. It’s still very early in the morning.

  4. EmmaWoodhouse September 23, 2013 at 03:19 #

    WAY too revealing. Not liking it at all.

  5. Kim September 23, 2013 at 03:24 #

    Love this so much. Refreshing and modern.

    • Yeliz September 23, 2013 at 10:56 #

      +1. It’s such a new and orginal look, I love everything about it. She is one of my favourites of the night.

  6. TeaAtTwo September 23, 2013 at 03:30 #

    I’m not sure about the sideboob but I like how modern and different this feels.

  7. Valissa September 23, 2013 at 03:33 #

    Love the dress, hair and makeup. Hate the shoes!

  8. Kate September 23, 2013 at 03:33 #

    The red carpet as whole tonight has been pretty lackluster.

    So I applaud Kate for doing something different. It isn’t a gown I would pick to wear, but it’s well-fitting, not safe, and she’s rocking it.

  9. Rose September 23, 2013 at 03:34 #

    No side boob – she’s wearing a nude color tube thingy underneath!

    That said, she looks amazing!

  10. Jasmin September 23, 2013 at 03:51 #

    For me the Mara sisters can do no wrong. Love their fashion sense and fearlessness.

  11. Melinda September 23, 2013 at 03:55 #

    Editorial perfection.

  12. Molly September 23, 2013 at 04:29 #

    I wish she would smile more often, she has a beautiful face! Those shoes kill this look for me.

  13. Alina September 23, 2013 at 05:41 #

    Love this!

  14. Aline September 23, 2013 at 06:01 #

    Had she selected this gown in a size up, she would’ve been one of my favorites. However, as it is, although gorgeous, it’s too tight.

  15. AG September 23, 2013 at 08:35 #

    I’m really liking this look! It’s something different and modern.

    perfect. One of my fave

  17. Alicat September 23, 2013 at 09:46 #

    I am not always a fan of her style but I love her in this. She certainly does the dress more justice than the model.

  18. Dorothy September 23, 2013 at 10:26 #

    I think that if the skirt didn’t have that visible second layer I would have loved the look even more. As it is I find it pretty good and very fitting to her fashion image.
    With such lackluster competition this is in my Top 10 for the night.

  19. Neli September 23, 2013 at 11:37 #

    boring

  20. Lei September 23, 2013 at 12:14 #

    One of my faves!

  21. The Dame Intl September 23, 2013 at 12:20 #

    YES! Love this, it works with her straight her.

  22. Ayishaa September 23, 2013 at 12:57 #

    This is beautiful. I love this

  23. gabis September 23, 2013 at 13:15 #

    She looks gorgeous but I’m not quite on board with the shoes. I wish she had opted for a more delicated one as seen on the runway.

  24. Mel September 23, 2013 at 13:34 #

    I love the dress and I love Kate hair style and makeup. Her choices make this look organic.

  25. Layla September 23, 2013 at 15:11 #

    Different shoes and a red lip would have completed this look. The styling on the runway is perfect.

  26. Camille September 23, 2013 at 16:01 #

    She looks like she borrowed this dress from Rooney and I think that flippy bob hits the wrong note for this look. Slicked back ponytail or bun would have been a better choice. The flipped hair looks preppy to me and she just looks like she’s trying on someone else’s dress. I actually love the dress, it different and cool and if you have the bod, it’s definitely flattering. But it just seems wrong for her.

  27. Rebecca Z September 23, 2013 at 16:21 #

    I like the dress from the front a lot, but the side boob issue detracts for–not prudish,it just isn’t very attractive. She needed a little more coverage. Otherwise, I like it.
